forbidden cityBeijing, China’s massive capital, has history stretching back 3 millennia. Yet it’s known as much for its modern architecture as its ancient sites such as the grand Forbidden City complex, the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Nearby, the massive Tiananmen Square pedestrian plaza is the site of Mao Zedong’s mausoleum and the National Museum of China, displaying a vast collection of cultural relics.
Included Shore Excursion: Forbidden City - Xian Warriors - Our 2 day private guided tour begins as we are met at the port and transferred to the Forbidden City. imperial throneExplore magnificent marble courtyards, huge halls, gilded temples and ornate pavilions, all are masterpieces of architectural history. The Forbidden City (also known officially as the Imperial Palace Museum) was commissioned by the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty. The palace was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times. The Forbidden City was the seat of Imperial power for 500 years, and the total area of the complex is 183 acres, so it takes quite a while to walk through.
Enjoy the scenery as we travel 5 hours by high-speed train to Xian. Taking a high speed train is one of the best ways to travel between Beijing and Xian. It is clean, comfortable, modern and fast, running a speed of 250 to 300 km/h. Upon arrival we will check in to our hotel, grab a bite to eat and spend the night.
xian warriorsToday is a highlight day as we are visiting the famous TerraCotta (Xian) Warriors. The army was created to safeguard First Emperor Qin in his afterlife as he wanted the same military power and imperial status he enjoyed during his earthly lifetime. The Terracotta Army figures’ excavation is regarded as one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century.  It had lain underground for more than 2000 years before farmers digging a well in 1974 uncovered what is now considered one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world.
TerraCotta Warrior horsesIn three pits, approximately 8,000 life-size, vivid in battle formation statues were revealed in the course of excavation — a whole army, which would accompany its emperor into immortality. Vault One is the largest and most impressive — the size of an airplane hangar, and believed to have over 6,000 terracotta figures of soldiers and horses. Every figure differs in facial features and expression, clothing, hairstyle, and gestures, providing detailed artifacts of that period.
